Course Materials:

The 2024 amendments to the Delaware General Corporation Law are intended to address the uncertainty created by recent Delaware Chancery Court decisions calling into question market practices surrounding governance agreements and board approval of merger agreements. However, the debate over the adoption of the amendment suggests that they may have significantly broader implications on the way Delaware corporations are governed, and raise a number of new questions about issues that have long been considered settled.

Join our panelists as they discuss the changes made by the 2024 DGCL amendments, how they may influence corporate governance and dealmaking practices, and some of the unanswered questions that practitioners and the Chancery Court will need to sort through.
